What to expect in your first session

In the first session, I will firstly undertake an initial assessment. I will gather some personal information about you, such as sleeping patterns, lifestyle information, medical symptoms or medication, and any treatments involving other healthcare providers. This is important because the information you provide enables me to tailor the sessions to you and your experiences. We will both be sitting in comfortable chairs and the conversation will be more of a discussion than a question-and-answer session. My aim is for you to feel relaxed from the start – even before formal therapy begins!

We will then go through your answers and identify any underlying problems or beliefs that may be contributing to the situation that you would like to change. We will also explore the problem or issue in more depth and answer any questions you may have.We will discuss your requirements and goals for therapy. I will then explain the process(es) and how we are going to proceed.

What happens in a hypnotherapy session?

Once we have established a plan of action, and you are feeling comfortable, I will hypnotise you for the first time. I will simply ask you to relax in your chair, or on the couch if you prefer, and bring you gently into a hypnotised state using my voice.

You are likely to feel extremely peaceful as if in a semi-sleep, a little as if you are dreaming. You will find that time passes very quickly while you are in this condition. In most cases in this first session, my main purpose will be to relax you and introduce you to the experience of hypnosis, rather than immediately working on your issues – although, depending on the issue to be dealt with, I may take some introductory steps.

I will wake you up gently. Even if we have not addressed your issues in any formal way in this first session, the experience of hypnosis itself is so profoundly relaxing that my clients leave already feeling that even this one brief experience has been of benefit. Stress is a significant part of most conditions, physical and mental, and even one short session can immediately start to alleviate this.

What happens in an EFT or EMO session?

As in hypnotherapy, once we have established a plan of action, and you are feeling comfortable, I will explain the protocols for each treatment.

For EFT, this will involve learning a short sequence of tapping movements on various meridians on your face, collarbone and hands. You will be asked to create a phrase, based on how you are feeling, and we work together to reduce the intensity of the feelings or emotions.


For EMO, this will involve using visualization techniques in order to release emotions or feelings that you may have been holding onto in order to restore balance.
